Are you an undergraduate or high school student over the age of 16 interested in experiencing scientific research and tree science?
Are you excited to learn new skills while getting paid?
Are you worried about applying because you don’t have any experience?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, this introductory internship is for you. Undergraduate and high school students over the age of 16, with little or no experience, are invited to participate in ongoing research at The Morton Arboretum, be mentored by our scientists, and see what it’s like to join a scientific research group. Experience careers that explore solutions for climate change, biodiversity, natural resources management, and urban life. Laboratory, computer, and outdoor field opportunities available.
The Center for Tree Science’s Integrated Mentorship Program is committed to supporting students and professionals at every stage in their careers. As the Arboretum continues to grow a diverse and inclusive program, flexible work assignments and additional assistance may be available.
Individuals from schools and universities with limited research opportunities, groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM programs, first- and second-year undergraduates, persons with disabilities, and veterans currently enrolled in an undergraduate program are encouraged to apply.
Applications for this program are no longer being accepted. Please contact email@example.com with any questions or to be notified when applications open for the next Research Technician Fellowship opportunity.
